Why was sex so important in early religions? Why have there been so many sexual scandals with priests? How and why did the practice of celibacy begin? Is being celibate psychologically helpful to monks, nuns, and others who must practice it? This book examines the role of sex in religion from the earliest known time of pre-Christian cults up into the modern day. It is the only book we know of that approaches the problem of sex and celibacy in religion in such a complete and thorough way. It describes an age-old struggle being waged by religious representatives between their own natural state of human sexuality and its complete suppression in the name of God.
